the terrifying photo shopped secrets of president barack hussein obama. did you know his emotional name is hussein? the conspiracies about the president get even more conspiratorial than they have in years past. >>> we're beginning with a big deal, a story you will not see anywhere else, because it is an nbc news exclusive. nbc's national investigative correspondent michael isikoff has uncovered something that is not classified, but treated as one of the biggest secrets of this administration. it's something the administration has been fighting over with newspapers and with congress and with all different sorts of groups suing them who have been trying to contain what mike isikoff has gotten closer than anybody else to naming. and it is happening right in the midst of really big changes happening right now in national security in washington. today in washington, of course, was secretary of state john kerry's first day on the job. he was sworn in on friday after his confirmation hearing and his confirmation vote process that were frankly a breeze. in the end, the senate vote was nearly u
? the commander in chief, that's who. who gets hurt by the cuts? the obama economy, that's what. will the president use his state of the union to scare congress? drilling on. democrat or republican, a president's job is to defend the country. drones do that job and reach terrorist plotters scheming in far away countries. you got a better weapon? finally, i could almost cry, love you so. teddy roosevelt's letter, ronald reagan to nancy, you're life itself. valentine's, a peek at the private world of our presidents. hi, i'm chris matthews and welcome to the show. with us today "time's" joe klein, cnn gloria borger, "new york times" elisabeth bumiller and "the washington post," david ignatius. first up, president obama will face congress tuesday night and try to drive a wedge between the country and his hard right opponents. look at the cloud of the most used words in the last 50 years of the state of the union addresses, number one word in 50 years, "more." presidents for five decades have used the state of the union to call for more. so what's "more" mean to president obama and w
the administration justifies the targeted killing of american citizens. the white house says president obama has directed the department of justice to brief members of the intelligence committees. the move comes after a bipartisan group of 11 senators led by democratic senator ron wyden of oregon called for more insight into the government's legal rationale for drone strikes against americans abroad. senator wyden said on twitter, "every american has the right to know when their government believes it's allowed to kill them." this followed the leaked white house memo obtained by nbc news this week detailing criteria required for such a strike. this is all unfolding before today's senate confirmation hearing for john brennan, nominated to be the next head of the cia. and andrea mitchell, i wonder if this could, in any way, get in the way of brennan again. >> well, this is so much in a state of flux right now. clearly, i mean, the president's called to senator wyden last night, so unusual to try to reassure him and try to ward off what could be a calamitous hearing today. the fact is that brennan
threat. the obama administration has focused almost entirely on al qaeda. believing people when they came in and said, look, the only people who can actually give you advice on dealing with these radical folks are islamic believers, he so you must get advice from us. form partnerships with us, let us give you advice, let us tell you how to deal with this threat. and they made great inroads in this administration in that approach. but the blindness of the larger jihadist threat, the enterprise that is being pursued by the muslim brotherhood abroad, has resulted in the practice of drone delivered assassinations of al qaeda figures with what many are questioning or arguing is due process without that. and this administration's repeated declaration that al qaeda is being defeated. they know not of what they speak. the idea that al qaeda is being defeated is helping recruit others who are radical jihadists, because they are able to point to a united states administration that is so blind and so uninformed of what really is going on that they think al qaeda's on the decline when radical jihad i
could teach obama a thing or two about dealing with evil. like all americans we want our kids safe in school, but remember, kids sometimes need to be kids especially on the playground. i guess if i was a kid today i'd be arrested. that's all the time we have left this evening, as always, thank you for being with us, let not your heart be troubled. the news continues, greta is standing by next to go on the record and we'll see you here tomorrow night. greta. take it away. >> greta: tonight, drone-gate is heating up in washington, rush limbaugh is already on fire. >> this is from nbc news, a confidential justice department memo concludes that the united states government, ie, president obama, can order the killing of american citizens, if they are believed to be senior operation leaders of al-qaeda or associated force, even if there isn't any intelligence indicating that they're engaged in an active plot to attack the united states. that's casting a really wide net because it almost sounds like he won't even have to be a senior operational leader of al-qaeda or associate, or actually
in the second half of the show. first, the man president obama nominated to run the c.i.a., counter-terrorism adviser john brennan spent quality time with the senate intelligence committee today as they considered his qualifications to become our nation's top spy. he faced tough questions from senators on both sides of the aisle. on the c.i.a.'s enhanced interrogation techniques aka torture, accusations he leaked secret information to reporters and his direction of the not so covert drone war against alleged terrorists. now, before brennan could say much, the hearing was interrupted by code pink peace protestors had a lot to say about the drone war themselves. >> they want you to tell congress what countries we are killing children. >> john: based on what we heard today congress might not be interested in knowing that information. intelligence committee chairwoman dianne feinstein said despite reports drones have killed hundreds of civilians -- >> the figures we've obtained from the executive branch which we have done our utmost to verify confirm that the number of civilian casualti
memo concludes that the united states government, ie, president obama, can order the killing of american citizens, if they are believed to be senior operation leaders of al-qaeda or associated force, even if there isn't any intelligence indicating that they're engaged in an active plot to attack the united states. that's casting a really wide net because it almost sounds like he won't even have to be a senior operational leader of al-qaeda or associate, or actually an associated force is interesting. if this-- if this provision had been in place back in the '70s, does this mean that nixon could have assassinated the weatherman? does this mean that richard nixon could have taken out the new black panther party? does it mean nixon could have killed bill ayers? it does mean that. bill ayers or the weatherman, he had an active plot against the u.s., bombed the pentagon. that means if this -- if nixon had assumed the kind of power that obama's assuming, he could have sent a commando team out to wipe out bill ayers. you can't kill rogue leaders, no, you cannot by law. we cannot ass

are an important part of the approach that the obama administration has followed and congress has supported, and it appears that sanctions are producing tremendous pressure on iran. another statement which has raised concern is senator hagel's recommendation that we conduct, "direct, unconditional, and comprehensive talks with the government of iran." now, while there is value in communicating with our adversaries, the formulation used by senator hagel seemed to imply a willingness to talk to iran on some issues that i believe most of us would view as non-negotiable, and any willingness to talk to iran would need to be highly conditional. senator hagel's reassurance to me and my office that he supports the obama administration's strong stance against iran is significant. we look forward to hearing senator hagel today in some depth on that subject. we will also be interested in hearing senator hagel's statement on the public statements is made on israel and the united states, that our policy of non-engagement with the syrians as, "isolated us more than the syrians," and a 2009 statement that

. if they are brought to claim it, they need to claim it quick. on january 13 of this year, president obama signed into law the 2013 intelligence authorization act which requires notification of any disclosure of national intelligence. we have not received any notification of authorized disclosures. have there been any authorized disclosures, to your knowledge? >> since you have not received any notification, there have not been. >> would you consider the information reported about the cameras and playback an authorized disclosure? >> i do not know which piece you're talking about. there has much discussion in the media and in the newspapers about this. i do not know specifically about any classified information. the fact that the administration may be going through a process to institutionalize our processes and procedures in an of itself is not a classified issue. those details that are classified, i do not know of any that came out in some of those reports. >> if there is classified information that is out there, and it was not authorized, was there a crime report filed relative to the play boo
